Kauai Yoga Training & Teacher Certification Courses

Kauai is a magical, mystical backdrop for our transformational Yoga Training and Teacher Certification OMmersion courses. We call these Edu-vacations because they are both educational and vacations! Blessed by azure blue waters, majestic mountain ranges haloed in mist, miles of sandy beaches, and powerful hikes to waterfalls… Kauai truly has it all.

Erika Faith is in her 20th year training yogis to be magnificent leaders. She has much experience; born out of a passion for bringing Yoga down to Earth while still keeping the traditions intact.

We couldn’t be happier to be hosted by some incredible spots on the North Shore. We have some of Kauai’s favorite local teachers offering their aloha yoga vibes for some of our practice classes and lectures. Candice Teresa (Yoga Girl Kauai), Delaney Wheeler, and Alicia Pahs to name a few… of course we always have surprise guests, so you never know what miracles are about to occur next! We have the pulse, and you will be right there with us to keep us updated on all the special insights you have about our favorite island paradise.

It is really ALL ABOUT YOGA. Living it. Breathing it. BEing it! We set a firm foundation for you to ground your own practice. Our team supports you with love, respect, and encouragement. We give you roots so you can spread your wings. As our days together go by, you are groomed from that solid ground up to the highest peak — to become the leader, teacher, and yogi that you can feel proud to be.

Cloud Nine Yoga School curriculum has a uniquely eclectic style that is both playful and deep, flowing and meditative. We fully embrace all levels, bodies, and ages of yoga practitioners. During this incredible adventure in Kauai, you will enjoy daily morning yoga practice, workshop style curriculum, peer teaching opportunities, and tropical classroom outings.

Beyond getting certified to teach yoga, this training begins the moment you connect with us. We support our trainees from the first call to years after graduation. Nurturing a community is important to us and we take time to bond with each group.

Let your yoga practice become infused with ALOHA.

If you are coming from anywhere outside Kauai, you will want to plan to stay with us at our private home. Please connect with us as soon as possible to reserve your spot as space is limited. Call Erika at 310-989-0878 or email her at: erika@cloudnineyoga.com to begin your registration process for our next available training!

Imagine arriving on the island surrounded by amazing yogis from all over the world on pristine, sacred grounds with breathtaking views of Kauai’s incredibly beautiful coastline.

Your main facilitator is Erika Faith Calig E-RYT 500, (aka: The Yogi Fairy Godmother) the Founder and Curator of Cloud Nine Yoga School curriculum!
